Election.?Next Tuesday, ?ber 7, will be election day, w>en p!e of the State will be called ;o elect members of tho House cf Delegates and one half of the members o: the Senate. The canvass through? out the State except in a few counties has been a very quiet one, as in many ?f the counties th^'e is no opposition to t ie regular democatic nominees. In - Sanatoria! district Mr. Donohoe have no opposition, and for mem b rs of the House from this city and 1 iuuty Mr. Hume has practically none, SJr. Loh, his opponent, not even having td bis name placed on the ticket to be voted in the county. In most of tbe ties composing this Congressional district the democratic nominees will i 've little or no opposition. Tne vote to tiie State will be exceedingly small, except in a few localities where there ?ro interesting local contests. In ?ost places the democratic op ?j-iiiou is so very weak that is not worth considering. Sen? ator Martin and Chairman Ellyson entertain no doubt of the election of all of i he democratic Senate and House candidates with the possible exception of not over 15. It is more likely, they think, that the representation among the opposition io (be nex' General As eenubly will not exceed 10. ? At Tuesday's election a vote will also j be bad on the constitutional amendment authorizing the abolition of May elec? tions for chosing county officers. J A vote will also be taken on the prop : osicion to strike from the Constitution j section 2 of article 10, which is as fol I lows: i "No tax shall be imposed on any of the oitizens of this Stale for the privi? lege of taking or catching oysters from their natural beds with tongs in the waters thereof; but the amount of sales of oysters so taken by any citizen, in any one year, may be taxed at a rate not exceeding tbe rate of taxation im? posed upon any other species of prop? erty." The Sisters' Fair w ill open Novem? ber 6. To insure its success the ladies in charge have worked nobly, leaving nothing undone that energy could ef? fect or a generous spiri' suggest. That the evenings may be attractive, enter? tainments will be given each evening by the best talent that can be secured, from both Alexandria and Washington. An Irish flag will be contested for by tbe Hibernians of Alexandria against the Fourth Division in Washington. The members in Alexandria say tbe green flag will never cross the Potomac. The) contest for a gun between Officers Beach and Knight promises to be a very close one. Not less interesting will be the contest among the foreman of the tire companies of tbe city for a fire? man's bat and belt. Messrs. H. Latham and H, P. Helwig are contesting for a silver punch bowi, both have hosts of friends and tbe contest will undoubted? ly hu a close oue. The most popular member of the Brotherhood of Locomo? tive Engineers will be voted a ring. Property Sales.?Capt. R. F. Knox sdii at auction today a lot of ground situated on the east side of Patrick street, 61 feet 60Utb of Wilkee, and tronting on Patrick street about 59 feet, with the four frame dwelling houses rbereon, to Dr. George T. Klipstein for $1,350. Mis3 Mary Barton Las sold to Mrs. Lillie c. Beid a houso and lot on the west side of Boyal street, between Prince and Duke streets, and a lot on the southeast corner of Wilkes and Fayette streets for $2,500. s Mrs. Fannie B. Betts has sold to F. P. Beid S a three-story brick residence on the west side of Boyal street, between King and Prince, for $2,000. Indicted.?Mrs. Susan Owens, of King George county, against whom tbe grand jury of the county court, at the October term, owing to sympathy for tbe woman, refused to find an indict ment for the burning of tbe storehouse and stock of goods of J. C. Ninde, in Auguat last, was yesterday indicted for the crime. She was bailed in the sum of $1,000 for her appearance at the December court. Tbe indictment has resulted in considerable feeling be? tween tbe friends of the two parties, botb of whom stand well in tbe county. Si Plunkard.?Tbe next attraction at derhned for next Wednesday at the Op^ra House is a rural comedy drama of Yankee farm life, entitled "Si Piunk ard," and will be presented by tbe young character actor, J. C. Lewis, upported by bis company of talented comedians. Tbe action of tbe play ad? mits of a number of novel aud pleasant specialties by a company of comedian;,, presenting a programme of mirth, mu? sic and novelties. Personal.?Mrs. Fitzbugh Lee is the <uest of Mrs. P. T. Yeatman, on Wash? ington street. Tl e property on tho southwest corner of Patriek and Cameron streets, advertised for sale at auction today by Mr F. E Anderson, trustee, was withdrawn without being offered. Mrs. H. C. Phillips and son have returned home after a pleasant visit to relatives in Bichmond. Mr. Thomas Hoy is quite sick at his home on Washington street. Funeral.? The funeral of Miss Grace Chase took place this morning from the Baptist Church, a large num? ber of the friends of the deceased being present to attend the sad services, which were conducted by Rev. J. H. Butler. The pallbearers were Messrs. Charles Peake, Mahlon Milstead, Har? vey Poss, Samuel Pitts, William Graves and Noble Lindsey. The Market today was only fairly well supplied with country produce and prices were rather higher than those of last week. Many of the sum? mer vegetables have entirely disap? peared from tbe benches, while others are scarce. The butchers bad large supplies of fresh meats and the fish benches were fairly well stocked. The Weather.?The rain of yester? day was followi d by clearing weather last night, the wind in the meantime shifting to northwesterly and tbe tem? perature becoming much cooler. This morning there was a heavy fro?t and ii is said that thin ice formed in exposed places. Today has been bright, cool and bracing. Lieutenant Iove?As heretofore stated first l/kutenant James M. Lovo, Twenty fir-it United States Infantry, has been select? ed to fill temporarily the position of acting Adjutant General of tho District of Columbia militia and ho will report for duty in a day or two. Until ho does so, Captain Alfred P. Bobbins, aide de camp on the brigade staff who has ably filled the position on numerous occasions heretofore, will officiate as acting Adjutant General. Lioutenant Lovo, who is from Fairfax county, was appointed to the army last year. He was wounded in tho right arm at ?Jalamb* on Augu-t 1 last, and was ordered homo on detached service. A strenuous effort is to be made in a short time to have Colonel Theordoro Mo.-her, now on the retired list as a major, detailed perma? nently as adjutant general of the District militia. _ Story of a Slave. To be bound baud and foot by the chains of disease is the worst form of slavery. George D Williams, of Man? chester, Mich., tells bow such a slave was made free. He eays: "My wife has been eo helpless for five years that she could not turn over in bed alone. After using two bottles of Electric Bit? ters, she is wonderfu ly improved and able to do her own work." This su? preme remedy for female diseases quick? ly cures nervousness, sleeplessness, mel ancbolv, htaiache, backache, fainting and dizzy spells. This miracle working medicine is a godsend to weak, sickly, I run down people. Every bottle guar I anteed. Only 50 cents Sold by E. S. I Leadbeater & Sons, Druggist.
